يقول الله عز وجل من أذهبت حبيبتيه فصبر واحتسب لم أرض له ثوابا دون الجنة

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports, “Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla says, For those whom I take away their two beloved things [i.e his eyesight] and he is patient and seeking reward, I shall not be satisfied with any reward for him less than Jannah.'”
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
